The exhibition opening at the German Historical Museum on Monday includes work by Jewish artists in hiding, in concentration and labour camps, and in ghettos. Of the 50 artists featured, 25 were murdered by the Nazis.

The works show the cruel reality of the Holocaust and the inmates' artistic escapism into realms of imagination.

The show's curator, Yad Vashem's Eliad Moreh-Rosenberg, called the creation of art during the Holocaust an "uncompromising act of resistance" by artists in mortal danger.

The show runs through April 3.
